ARV Meds and Dizzyness
« on: June 04, 2014, 08:19:29 AM »
Dammit! Ok, here's what's going on. I switched to Stribild, and barely can manage to sleep 5-6 hours anymore, its so annoying but I just cant sleep. It seems like i'm getting muscle spasms in my legs, and little needles occasionally on my feet, wtf! I'm not solely blaming the Stribild, but what the hell, I WANT to sleep, I just cant. My heart palps are getting annoying, and i'm just so irritated with all this shit. I hate that I keep saying to myself, well if you didn't get infected you might not be dealing with this. I talked to my Doctor about the feeling like i'm on a boat during the day, a bit of vertigo, or dizzyness and he went straight to switching the combo again, NO FUCKING WAY DOC! I BARELY caved in about switching off Complera, but i'm not giving up the one pill a day thing, nope no noway no how. Whats your guys' advice, any dizziness? He says its from Emtrictabine, in all the daily pills. How long did it last?


Thanks,

Abso

Discuss a combination without emtrictabine. There are several options. It won't be one pill, but it might be once a day.
